We cover cerebral palsy from all angles–from symptoms, causes, and treatment, to daily living information, such as communication and transitioning to adulthood articles.
Cerebral palsy can be a great expense to families, particularly those who don’t have access to adequate insurance or the funds to get all of the supplies needed.
The government offers numerous forms of assistance that can help and your child live more qualities lives and cover medical expenses.
- Supplemental Security Income: 800-772-1213.
- Social Security Disability Insurance: To apply for SSDI, visit your local social security office or call 800-772-1213 to have an application mailed to you. Keep in mind that you’ll need to show proof of residence, your child’s birth certificate, past medical bills, and the names of numbers of any physicians that can help prove your child’s disability.
- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
Lawsuits and Financial Assistance
If your child’s cerebral palsy was caused by the negligence of medical professionals, you have the legal right to file for damages against the responsible party.
Medical negligence can occur in many different ways, but the most common reasons that medical mistakes lead to a child developing cerebral palsy include:
- Failure to schedule and carry out an emergency C-section in time
- Improper use of birth-assisting tools during delivery, such as forceps or a vacuum extraction tool
- Failure to detect, diagnose, and treat infant jaundice
- Failure to detect, diagnose, and treat low blood sugar
- Failure to detect, diagnose, and treat maternal preeclampsia
- Administering too much medication or the wrong kind of medication during delivery
- Failure to monitor fetal distress and infant heart rate
If medical negligence is proven, parents or guardians of the child with cerebral palsy can receive financial compensation to help care for the child’s medical needs, including past expenses, as well as the expected cost of future expenses.
Some states also allow punitive damages if you’re cerebral palsy lawsuit is successful. Punitive damages award the plaintiff compensation in addition to the actual damages, in order to pay for things such as physical pain and suffering, emotional stress, and more.
Aging and Disability Resource Assistance
While the Aging and Disability Resources Centers (ADRC) will not help your child until he/she is an adult, it’s a great organization for elderly adults as well as people over 18 years of age who live with cerebral palsy.
ADRC provides assistance in helping people with cerebral palsy with financial assistance, as well as:
- Financial planning and assistance
- Legal help
- Job training and job search assistance
- Housing assistance
- Medical and dental assistance
- Prescription medication coverage
- Mental health counseling services
